Everton fans want Nikola Vlasic and Davy Klaassen to play in this weekend’s clash with Stoke City, but they aren’t too impressed with Michael Keane.
Davy Klaassen made his return to action in Everton’s 2-0 win over Brighton last weekend, and fans are desperate to see more of him this weekend.
The Dutch midfielder joined from Ajax last summer, but has barely made a mark in his short Goodison career due mainly to problems with fitness. He has played 90 minutes for the Blues just twice, and last week against Brighton was his first time on the pitch since December.
Fans also want to see more of Nikola Vlasic, who is another summer signing yet to make his stamp on the season. Vlasic impressed in the Europa League this season, grabbing two goals and an assist in three starts, but hasn’t made the desired impact in the Premier League.
Everton’s official Twitter account asked fans for their line-ups for the clash with Stoke City this weekend, and most fans are agreed on giving chances to Klaassen and Vlasic, especially in light of the injury to Gylfi Sigurdsson.
It’s not good news for Michael Keane though, another one of the club’s big money signings from last summer. The youngster said he is delighted to have Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines back alongside him, but some fans are questioning if he should keep his place.
Some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
4-Coleman,Keane,Funes Mori,Baines 3- Gueye, Rooney, Klassen(want to see him play). 3-Vlasic(just to see how he does he hasn’t played in a while), Tosun(duh), Walcott

No? Michael Keane should be nowhere near the team. Play Holgate, Jags Coleman and Baines.

We looked solid last weekend v BHA but saying that they didn’t offer much going forward. I’d swap Davies for Gueye, and Gylfi for Klaasen. Tosun would relish the challenge of a stoke back line.

Holgate for Keane

No change other than Klaasen for Siggy and Vlasic for Walcott.
